Stop #2 was Cocoa Beach on the east coast of Florida. Cocoa Beach is just south of Cape Canaveral, where the United States launches rockets into space! We got up our first morning there and it was cloudy but we went to the beach first thing anyway. We were the only people on the beach for the first half hour, which was really neat because it was warm even though it was cloudy. We splashed in the water (which was cold!) and made an aquaduct from where my brother had built a sandcastle down to the waves. My mom took a picture of it (below). The shells were okay, but not very fancy. The sun came out and in no time the beach was swarmed with thousands of people!
